Hair Love

Hair Love Posted on June 14th, 2013 in Hair.

So the other day I reposted an image that I saw on Instagram that absolutely killed me!  Seriously, I was crying with laughter.  As funny as it was, it started to stir something inside me–a bit of which I expressed in my Instagram caption— but the more I thought on it, the more I realized it needed a larger response.  So I took to my laptop and recorded a video! Apologies for the blurriness, I’m doing my best to be more technologically savvy but apparently it’s a process, hahaha! Anyways, hope you enjoy a bit of my hair story, and I absolutely cannot wait to hear why you LOVE YOUR HAIR!

    Peace and Happiness Tracee! Let me first say this; I LOVE YOU!! You are an inspiration and my idol. I appreciate you! I hope you read this. PLEEEEASE!!! LOL

    I have naturally curly hair and my hair has been a slave of the relaxer since 1993. I was 13.. I always thought that straight hair was the way it was supposed to be. I wanted to fit in, so I begged my mom for a relaxer. 18 years later at the age of 31, I decided to go natural. Enough was enough. No more relaxers. I too, didn’t do the “Big Chop”. I did what I like to call, the “Trim and Grow”, LOL. I experienced a lot of breakage and cried. It’s been a rough two years, but I toughed it out. I am now 33 and relaxer free. I’m back to my natural curls and I LOVE ME! I have now embraced what I’ve been blessed with. NATURAL GIRLS ROCK!!

    Bless for taking the time out to record this video. On Wednesday, aroundthewaycurls picked me to be the aroundthewaycurls girl of the day! I was excited. I’ve enclosed photos of my natural self. Those were taken two days ago. 06-12-2013

    Love and Blessings Tracee,

    Trace you ARE awesome and I love everything about you. EYE….Love my hair because its fun…I love my hair because it’s soft….I love my hair because it has an attitude and does what it wants…I love my hair because I can wash and go….I love my hair because it’s different. I love my hair mostly because it’s one thing amongst others that I can say I love about myself.

  • Phyona

    I am giving away one of my natural hair tshirts on instagram hashtag #TNHairLuv and since @teamnatural_ was inspired by your video I came to check it out, love it! Personally I love my hair because it makes me feel free. I get more attention when it’s straightened but when it’s in it’s natural state I feel liberated, every flip, sway, bounce of my hair makes me feel good about my decision to rock my hair the way it is even if some people don’t find it aesthetically pleasing or even “unprofessional” I take care of my hair and it shows, it looks and feels healthy, it gives me life Tracee liiiife!

    Why I love my Hair!

    Why I love my hair :)

  • Charmarie

    I happened to come across your video on Huffington Post and I just wanted comment on how amazing I think your video is. I’ve been fighting with my hair since I cut it off last year and I just want to thank you for addressing this, it’s true I have hair envy of sorts but the bottom line is I had a relaxer to make it something it wasn’t and even as a natural I’ve caught myself doing the same thing. I’m going to stop and just embrace my own curl. I get compliments from people because they love my curl pattern and say I wear short hair well. But still inside of my is a level of insecurity about my hair. Thank you Tracee, for wrangling me back and realizing what’s important, loving what I have and not trying to make it something it’s not. Besides I’m sick of reading natural hair care blogs, lol.

    I dont have a webcam but I do have a pic for ya. I lost all my hair from chemo over the last 2 years. I had long wavy hair before but as it grew back it came in very kinky. I had no idea how to take care of it and my family kept pickin on me and laughing at my “fro”. I kept trying different products to “defrizz” it to try to get it to lay down but nothing worked at all. Well I am now proud of my hair. This pic was taken after I brushed it so its a bit frizzy but if I pick it out it is very tight curls. If I pull my hair down it goes past my nose. Thank you for your video.

  • Bryana

    My name is Bryana and I love my hair because its healthy! I also love my hair because accessories just look better with my textured, kinky, curly tresses! LOL

    I saw this all go down on IG. Love that Tracee is transparent w her love/hate w her hair and reached out to Around The Way Curls. And she posted she wanted to work w the girls!

    Right on Tracee!! Great message about loving what you have and not coveting others curls (sooo easier said than done…)

  • Ronnie

    I love my hair because…. it’s versitle! I can do so many different things with it, and it’s the most fun ever! I thank God for my hair, because so many people aren’t able, and that can be huge esteem killer for a girl!

  • Nappycurls

    I love my hair because it’s versatile, because it’s tightly curled because it’s faithful and it fits to me best. It’s what God gave me and everytime i straighten it I can’t wait to see the curls again. (4bhair)

    If we shared the love that our hair consistently gives to us, reciprocity would lead us to a utopian world.

    I’m with you 100% Tracee, that’s why I wrote the tell all book “UNBEWEAVABLE”. I plan to get One Million men on August 31 2015 to walk up to 10 black women and just say “I LOVE YOUR HAIR” Just think of it, 10 million black women lifted -up in one day. It’s been to long for us (Black men) not appreciating our black women’s natural hair. Want to help? or get the book, contact me at, or:
